Happiness

As our grief slowly moves beyond the pain of loss and loneliness, often we ask ourselves, “Will I ever be happy again?”

Soaring

When we grieve, somewhere deep within we long to soar again.

Perfect Faithfulness

God is perfect. God is faithful. God’s perfect faithfulness is our one true guide through the valley of the shadow of death.

Grief Recovery

What is it about grief that seems so at odds with the notion of recovery?

Stuck

If we're experiencing a kind of mental, emotional, or spiritual inertia, we may be temporarily stuck in our grief.

Clean Break

When our heartbreak comes from a love that's pure, true, and untarnished, putting the pieces of our life back together is a labor of love, the work of grief that honors the love we shared with the one now lost to us in death.

Relief

It's entirely okay to admit we feel relief when the holidays are past, especially when we're grieving.

Seek the Light

We make our way through the valley of the shadow of death because of the certainty of light, the assurance of God's light, the light we seek at Christmas.

The Glow

When we grieve, really what we're seeking is the light that inspires our glow.

Participate

There are no seasonal "grief rules".

Plan

If this is the first holiday without your loved one, it's important to make a plan and structure the season accordingly.

Honest Holidays

Because of the rapid succession of holidays now upon us – Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year - November and December may feel like unending days of prolonged remembrance.
